Text: Void (XXXVII. from Time and Eternity) by Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886)

Great streets of silence led away
To neighborhoods of pause;
Here was no notice, no dissent
No universe, no laws.

By clocks ‘t was morning, and for night
The bells at distance called;
But epoch had no basis here,
For period exhaled.
